As Newton leaned against a tiny lectern, he looked about as cheery as a 10-year-old who'd just learned his new bike had been stolen.

The hardest thing for Newton to grasp -- even in the midst of a season where Carolina is now 2-5 following Sunday's 33-20 win over Washington -- is that there should be plenty of optimism stirring in this franchise. In just seven weeks, he has gone from being the most scrutinized No. 1 overall pick in NFL draft history to being hailed as a burgeoning superstar.

I really don't get this concern. Do you see "Chosen One" tattooed anywhere on Cam? He believes every loss is his fault, never that his supporting cast fails him. They couldn't be more different.

Besides, he's a national figure already, no need to go to a big media market like NBA players have to, and we'll always be able to pay him more than other teams (not that he's shown he's terribly concerned about the money. He just wants to play and win football games.)

hard to compare because this is less likely in the NFL because one player can't make a team, even though he has had a huge impact on the panthers...Also, his personality is not like Lebron's. His work ethic, passion and the willingness to be great is nothing like Lebron.

No I understand the personality differences and the fact that football is a totally different team sport than basketball. (Different in the sense that most bball players take a diva persona) Just saying if the chips don't fall where we hope them too that he doesn't get fed up with losing so much that he leaves.

true...I would certainly hope that we continue to put a team out there in the next few years that is a playoff contender every year.

Is this a realistic possibility? How is Carolina and Charlotte perceived around the league? Do you think Cam is that type of guy?

Forgive my ignorance, but how exactly can we always pay him more than other teams?

"The guy always had a big-time arm and he's always been accurate," the (NFL) personnel director said. "If you go back and look at the games he played in the second half of last year -- many against great competition -- he made some throws that proved his coaches trusted his arm."


And there are still some that will insist that he was not an accurate passer in college.
